In medical school, Emily has been highly involved in clinical research with multiple first-author papers in peer-reviewed medical journals and presentations at international conferences.

Emily has taught everything from swimming and Tae Kwon Do to SATs and essay writing. She worked at the University of Pennsylvania Tutoring Center as a private and small group biology tutor, privately tutored high school students in SAT and ACT prep, and coached students for graduate school applications (MD and Masters programs). As an EMT of six years, she has trained fellow EMTs in their continuing education, worked as a TA for medical school courses, and teaches clinical skills and reasoning to junior medical students at her school's student-run free clinic.

As an applications strategy coach with Cambridge Coaching, Emily has worked with many students on refining their program lists, planning and editing essays, and preparing for interviews.

    "Emily was given the difficult task of helping me prepare for my MCAT exam with a minimal amount of time to prepare. Despite questioning if I would be able to do it myself, Emily was extremely encouraging and created the best study plan to ensure I was prepared for my test. Emily was very attentive when adjustments needed to be made to ensure I accomplished my goal. She helped me stay calm and self-assured through the whole process. Each session Emily was prepared and helped me to better understand more difficult topics. She even supplied additional material and practice exercises to ensure I fully grasped topics. Whenever I had questions outside of our typical study sessions Emily replied in a timely fashion and provided great explanations. Emily is one of the best tutors I have worked with and I would give her the highest recommendation possible!"

    "[What did your tutor do well?] Responding quickly and leaving good feedback. I got into VCU, Case Western, and BU's programs with a 7500 dollars scholarship from BU. I am still awaiting responses from Temple, University of Cincinnati, and University of Michigan's programs."
